University of South Florida Credit Card Presentation

Credit Card Reconciliation Process


Banking, Cash collections and reconciliation training:

Today’s training has been design for all departments that are using credit cards, new staff that need to understand the process of reconciling the credit cards. We encourage you to have your PCI compliance test up to date.


University general ledger accounts:

On this training we will talk about

the credit card accounts. There are two main credit card accounts : the

Regular Credit Card

and the

Student Tuition


In the general ledger they both have a different account number.


General Ledger account

Regular Credit Card 10061

Student Tuition Account 10071

If the deposit number or the paperwork submitted to the cashiers office is not properly identified, a deposit could be posted in the incorrect general ledger account.


Requesting a new credit card merchant

1.Send an email requesting your new credit card merchant

account to General Accounting. (

2. A form will be sent to you to provide the merchant name, the contact person, phone number, fax number, email address and campus mail address.


. We will also need a chart field to post the revenue and the merchant fees.


Also specify which credit card types would you like to accept

: Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express.


Change in your Department

On a new fiscal year some departments close a fund or a project and open another.

If any change occurs on the revenue or merchant fees chart field, we encourage you to inform General Accounting to make the appropriate correction.

Make sure to have budget in place to be able to post your fees.

Also if an employee leaves the department please make sure you notify us so we can make sure we contact the new employee to have our credit card contact list updated. Also a change on name if you get married and your email changes please notify us to make the changes as well.


Types of transactions accepted

The University of South Florida has two different forms of accepting a credit card transaction.Online payments or card not present transactions:

these are processed thru Touch net Payment Gateway. A website is setup for the department to receive the payments online for the products or services they want to provide.

Card Swipe or Card present transactions:

This is the typical transactions where the customer is present and swipes its card to pay for the transaction.



On their website



we can view all our credit card deposit activity, chargebacks, merchant fees at all times.

All departments have the access to this website and they are responsible of reconciling on a monthly basis.

If you have not setup your account in client line please do so to view your merchant statements and reconcile. You will need your merchant number, bank account number and tax id number. You can setup more than one person if needed for reconciling purposes.

If you do not have this information send me an email and I would gladly sent it to you.


Recording credit card deposits:

1. All credit cards being processed thru touch net are posted on a daily basis by the cashier’s office but the chargebacks need to be posted by the department.

2. All departments that send the credit card deposits to the cashier’s office should do them on a daily basis. Deposits are sent to cashiers in a Miscellaneous receipts Form. Please remember to write the correct chart field, the deposit number and the amount.

3. The deposit number for

Visa, Master Card and Discover

merchants is the last five

numbers of the merchant number for


USF Athletics –

482032953994 = 53994 4. For American Express merchants the deposit number is: 376 + the last three numbers of your merchant number for example: USF Athletics – 4098139008 –

Deposits sent to the cashiers thru email

When sending the cashiers office deposits thru an email please remember to :

Attach paperwork with deposit number, amount, date and for ex. if it is a credit card or lockbox deposit since they belong to different general ledger accounts specify what type of deposit it is.

Make sure the email was received by the cashiers office and that you have a confirmation from them.

Also if it is a correction make sure to write a brief but clear note of what is being corrected. The date of the original transaction and the amount.


Add all backup paperwork needed:

All departments that originate their own Miscellaneous Receipts Form should include back up paperwork for example : copy of the invoice, check , credit card slip, etc.

All information pertaining the deposit should be included in order to have backup papers for future reference.

On the Miscellaneous Receipts Form do not change the order of the chart field. It is in order for the cashiers benefit.


Taking deposit paperwork to the cashier’s office:

1. The Cashier’s Office rules are: T

ake all deposits to the office before 2:30 p.m. in order to be processed the same date.

2. If a deposit number is not on the paper submitted it will be returned to the department.

3. Identify clearly if it is an e check, check, lockbox or credit card.


emember all American Express deposits should be posted separate from the Visa, Master Card and Discover Card.

4. If submitting a prior month correction please write a note stating the correction and the original transaction’s date and amount to facilitate the reconciliation process.

Chargeback recording:

The contact person for the department will receive a chargeback document that the bank sends General Accounting and they make a copy and send to the contact person via campus mail .

It is your responsibility to print your merchant statement and review if any chargeback has been charged to your account, follow up with the student or owner of the credit card. Dispute and send any information the bank is requesting.

Send the appropriate Miscellaneous Receipts form with the posting of the chargeback to the cashier’s office. Also remember to write a note and include any backup paperwork.


All corrections and chargebacks posting should be on the same month:

All prior month corrections should be stated in a note in the Miscellaneous Receipts form sent to the cashiers. Include as much information to be able to tie the correction to the original transaction.

All chargebacks are always in the first page of your merchant statements.

All corrections and chargebacks should be posted or corrected in the same month .

If a chargeback has not been posted or a correction done, when General Accounting reconciles and finds it they will send you an email informing you to post the chargeback.

. Chargebacks are also known as debits in your

merchant statements and they are negative amounts when sent to post to cashiers office.
